Tanznacht Berlin 2016


Tanz im August

Within the realm of contemporary dance, a form that is continuously undergoing change, the question of companionship seems more relevant than ever. Who or what do we choose to bring along with us for part of our journey through a world that is more on the move than ever before? Where can we find alliances that help us (put) progress into motion?

The biennial Tanznacht Berlin 2016 (Berlin Dance Night 2016) dedicates four days to the search for exactly that interdependence, through the lens of the social choreography found in dance, song, installation or story-telling and the correlation between dance and speech, artist and audience, art and ecology, or dance history and body biographies. With a broad spectrum of event formats, the 9th edition of this festival will map out current trends and alliances in contemporary dance.

Tanznacht Berlin is an event by Tanzfabrik Berlin. Funded by Hauptstadtkulturfonds. With kind support by apap-advancing performing arts project - Performing Europe 2020 / EU - Creative Europe Programme, Institut  Français, Instituto Cervantes. In cooperation with Uferstudios and HAU Hebbel am Ufer/Tanz im August.
